The 6th annual Halloween Candy Drive will take place November 1st – 5th.
This FIVE DAY initiative aims to teach children the power of giving through items that are truly valuable to children of all ages: their Halloween Candy! For each piece of candy donated, The B Fund contributes $0.25 to Boston Children’s Hospital and Team IMPACT, up to a total of $25,000.
For those of you who have never participated in our Halloween Candy Drive, the objectives of this drive are twofold:
- to raise funds for critically ill children and their families
- to teach children about the power of giving.
Children may not understand the value of a dollar or quarter, but they understand the excitement of receiving candy each Halloween. The drive encourages children to donate some of these treasures to help sick kids.
Once the candy is collected, participating schools, businesses and families will help children to inspect and sort donated candy and place up to 20 pieces of candy into a Ziploc bag. Each child will color a “Have a Boo-tiful Day” card, sign their name and seal their bag.
Treat bags will be distributed locally to individuals working to improve the health of critically ill children. This includes families and staff members at local hospitals, police and fire stations.
FAST FACT: In just five short years, The B Fund’s Halloween Candy Drive has raised $66,500 and has inspired over 10,000 individuals across SIX states to make a difference in the lives of families caring for critically ill children.
